Helpful Advice

Many people are wisely getting multiple estimates on there gold jewelry and precious metals, which is exactly what you want to do. There are 2 main reasons why you should do this. With the increase of gold and precious metals every small business in America seems to be buying gold and precious metals. However, if your jewelry is not tested accurately or with correct methods you will not get true value or top dollar. Some establishments feed off of this and take advantage of people. Correct testing methods are crucial as you need to know exactly what you have in order to value it. The other main reason to get multiple estimates is that you may have an item that is worth far more than its melt value. We have multiple cases where people have walked in thinking they were going to get $50 to a $100 and they ended up walking out with $600 to $800 and more. This is why a trusted, well trained company should evaluate your gold jewelry and other fine valuables. Becoming educated on your valuables as well as certain testing methods will ensure the highest payout, not to mention a sound mind.

Gold value graphs shown throughout the Gold industry state how much gold is worth on the market at 100%. The percentages to the right, on the graph below, show how much each karat weight is actually gold. This is due to the fact that gold, in its truest form, is far too brittle to be molded into much of anything.
